Funny Money

Europe is facing an existential threat: Italy is threatening to print their own euros, and Greece and Spain are threatening to return to drachmas and pesos.

Some crazy person on a TV show is screaming that the US must now send trillions of dollars to help bail out Europe.  It does make one wonder, how is one funny piece of paper any different from another?

It's crazy, isn't it? We have to have faith that things are going to work out - but it is entirely possible that we are going to see draconianly hard times, possibly very dangerous times, before this all finds a way to right itself.

I wish we had better people in charge.

The only people in charge should be your immediate family. Everyone else is likely to steal from you. I don't see how we'll ever get back to Mayberry.
